I was looking at reviews for this pattern because it's in my que right now - WOW, your version is awesome! I may make one just like yours - so chic. I hope you've been getting lots of wear from it.

Love, love, love your jacket! Even better than the "originals". Great design, fabric selection, techniques, and execution. A+++ Way to go!

Lovely work and fabric here. Easy?! Doesn't look like an easy pattern for beginners to me! :) Thanks for a good review.

I so want that jacket! You can do so many things with just that one piece. Excellent job.

Jartayne: The ruffles were basted to the front and neckline before the bagged lining was stitched on. Without having the original to check their scale, I just made the ruffle strip to a height I found flattering. Other than that, the sleeve bands and buttonholes were the only other pattern modifications I had to make. I never did get around to adding the pockets!

How did you add the ruffles? What were the measurements? And what other adjustments did you make to make it look like the Fiona jacket.

Fabulous jacket! I like the ruffle you added. I'd buy your version before I bought the J.Crew jacket.

Great jacket! I really like the asymmetry of the ruffle on one side of the jacket. Great job!

Great jacket! Love your version. Sounds a great pattern considering it includes lining (bagging instructions)& finishing details.

I really like what you did with the collar - I would not have seen past the envelope picture to envision it with the ruffles. Your version is adorable!

This jacket is so "current". I really like the cut, the ruffle and the fabric you've selected. I am sure you will get a lot of mileage out of this and compliments!

Lovely jacket. Love the ruffles! Great knockoff of the Fiona jacket. Your topstitching looks fantastic. Love the fabric choice as well.

What a cute jacket! I love this!

A really excellent first review of your beautiful jacket that emulates a RTW jacket. In fact, I like your jacket better as your buttons have more panache than the inspiration garment. Superb workmanship. I look forward to seeing many more of your lovely creations in the future. -Lily

Impressive and inspiring! Please model for us once you've applied the patch pockets. Super job!

Very cute jacket! I keep thinking I'd like to make a jacket in this style and I really like your version. Nice job! Thanks for the tip on the bagged lining too.

Tres chic! Very couture-looking. Nice to know this pattern has bagged lining instructions. I might try it just for that. Well, and the really cute jacket that results! Nice work.
